I've been and sorted out my route with STA, very helpful. I leave london for LA on to cook islands on to fiji on to sydney (Christmas & New Year) on to auckland then SE Asia. Plan to depart london Mid November. Anyone else thinking of doing similar or same route please get in touch. I cant wait there's so much i want to see and do. Got the offer of 3 months work in New Zealand to help pay for the last leg of my travels SE Asia. Hope to hear from some solo travellers that might like a beer along the way.
i was never aware heading from London to USA and onwards was a backwards route...
my routs funny enough with STA travel also is as follows...
London - NYC - LA - New Zealand - Sydney - Melbourne - Cairns - Sydney - Thailand - India - London
All starts on Jan 16th 2008, my main stopping ground is infact Sydney where i plan to work and gather up a few more $$$ for the closing leg of my tour all spanned over 9 months...
seems your leaving slightly earlier than me, but i think we'll be in Australia @ the same time..
You're trip sounds really interesting. We've recently sorted our trip out too with STA. Not sure which deal we got but were leaving in sept 07. First stop is South East Asia, then onto Austaralia for christmas, stay there for 6 months, then for the last three months its New Zealand, Fiji, Hawaii and the U.S/Canada.
Pretty similar trip only backwards!!
im not gonna lie, im pretty envious of those!!
you'll have a blast!
